Jenny Craig Recipe Creation: Peppermint Cake Pops | No Thanks to Cake

A fun twist on the Chocolate Lava Cake, this holiday dessert is perfect for Santa's cookie plate (or for mom on a cold winter's night.)



  • Prepare Jenny Craig Chocolate Lava Cake according to package instructions. 
  • Scoop out as much of the melted chocolate as possible, and place it in a small microwave-safe bowl. Place bowl in the refrigerator.
  • In separate bowl, crumble the cake and mix in mint extract. Roll into two balls using your hands.
  • Insert a cake pop stick into each ball, and place them in the freezer for 20 minutes.
  • Once the cake pops have firmed up, remove them from the freezer.
  • Place the molten chocolate in the microwave for 5-second increments, stirring until smooth.
  • Dip and swirl your cake pops in the chocolate to coat. Coat with some of the crushed candy cane pieces (to your preference), and place in a small vase or styrofoam block to dry.
